Mizobe Country Club
Mizobe Country Club is a golf course created according to the vision of Mitsuaki Kobayashi, one of Japan's leading golf course designers. It has the highest course rating among all 32 golf courses he designed (74.1 from fullback).
The course is highly strategic and boldly incorporates a water layout. Renowned for its iconic pond scenery, the course's aesthetics match its designer's nickname, "Water Kobayashi." The view of the Kirishima mountain range to the east and the majestic Sakurajima to the south, combined with the ponds, make this a beautiful course.
There are 27 golf courses in Kagoshima Prefecture, but this is the newest, opened in 1995. It is an easy 40-minute drive northeast of Kagoshima City and a 10-minute drive from Kagoshima Airport.
The baths at the golf course are natural hot springs that make you feel at home. The club is a membership golf club, but the restaurant, lockers, showers, and stores in the clubhouse are open to visitors.
